When you befriend a monkey, you may take the following move when you level up:
Monkey Friends are the Best Friends
You and your monkey have a special bond. You can’t talk to it per se, but it will always act as you wish it to. When you and your monkey work together, take +1 forward to any action where a distraction or an extra set of hands would be useful.
You may then select the following as class moves:
When you let your monkey roam for a while in a civilized area and he returns, roll. On a 10+ your monkey gives you an interesting or valuable item. On a 7-9, the item is also dangerous or draws unwelcome attention to you.
Your monkey is always looking out for you. It will scream at the first sign of danger, ensuring you are never surprised. When an enemy would get the drop on you, you get to act first instead.
Dial M for Monkey
Your monkey is exceptionally smart. It can follow complex orders and understand speech, though you are the only one who can understand what it says. When you consult your monkey while attempting to discern realities, you can ask one additional question, even on a miss.
